This might be my mistake but on the only bounty I offered and gave the bounty went to the wrong answer.

That is, I am pretty sure that I intended to give it to one answer, but then I got a comment from the author saying that he is confused as to why I gave it to an old answer of his, rather than to the newer and better answer he wrote due to the bounty (it was the answer to which I intended to give the bounty).

There is very little way for me to trace exactly what happened, and it's not cheap for me to conduct experiments, so I post here to see if others have experienced a similar event. Specifically, there may have been a confusion since the same author had 3 answers. I do not discount that I could have been confused, but if there's some sort of bug, it would be nice to find it.

I'll have to assume that you did indeed misclick, since the server log shows your "award bounty" request to go to the old answer:

(note the 4537 in the Uri). I also checked the corresponding JavaScript code, and I can't find any reason whatsoever why it would send the wrong post id to the server.
